Provides support for spin-based waiting.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals||Indicates whether this instance and a specified object are equal. (Inherited from ValueType.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Reset||Resets the spin counter.|
|SpinOnce||Performs a single spin.|
|SpinUntil(Func(Boolean))||Spins until the specified condition is satisfied.|
|SpinUntil(Func(Boolean), Int32)||Spins until the specified condition is satisfied or until the specified timeout is expired.|
|SpinUntil(Func(Boolean), TimeSpan)||Spins until the specified condition is satisfied or until the specified timeout is expired.|
|ToString||Returns the fully qualified type name of this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)|
encapsulates common spinning logic. On single-processor machines, yields are always used instead of busy waits, and on computers with Intel processors employing Hyper-Threading technology, it helps to prevent hardware thread starvation. SpinWait encapsulates a good mixture of spinning and true yielding.
is a value type, which means that low-level code can utilize SpinWait without fear of unnecessary allocation overheads. SpinWait is not generally useful for ordinary applications. In most cases, you should use the synchronization classes provided by the .NET Framework, such as Monitor. For most purposes where spin waiting is required, however, the type should be preferred over the SpinWait method.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: Synchronization | ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
